As you can imagine, when something goes wrong with an aircraft the results have the potential to be extremely expensive, costly enough to drive an airline or aeroplane manufacturer out of business. There are several different types of aviation insurance policy, each designed to meet a very specific set of risks. If you operate in the sector, you cannot afford not to insure your business against the worst happening.

What is the purpose of Aviation insurance?
In-Flight insurance covers an aircraft for damages that happen while the plane is in motion. Because most aircraft accidents happen while flying, this is usually the most expensive type of aviation insurance.

Ground Risk Hull insurance – Non motion – covers damages sustained while an aircraft is on the ground and not in motion. The policy includes damage as a result of crime, natural disasters, animals, uninsured aircraft and other vehicles, vandalism and theft.

Ground Risk Hull insurance – In motion – covers damage while the plane is on the ground and in motion, paying out for damage sustained during the taxi process and take-off.

Combined Single Limit Aviation insurance – A policy including public liability and passenger liability insurance, with a set payout limit for each individual incident.

Public Liability insurance – Usually required by law, this covers damage to third-party entities and property, but not damage to the plane or to the passengers in it.

Passenger Liability insurance – This provides insurance for passengers travelling in the plane while the policyholder is operating it, paying out for injuries and 'final expenses' if there's a fatality.

Key features
Each of the above insurances covers a very specific set of air travel and aeroplane-focused risks.

Hauliers, forwarders and warehousers all have a contractual liability for loss, regardless of who is responsible for that loss. The best way to protect your business from the financial strain of a loss is to buy freight forwarders liability insurance cover.  It is very important to ensure you buy full liability protection for all of your forwarding operations, and have the right amount of cover.

What is the purpose of Freight Forwarders Liability insurance?
Imagine you are carrying freight for a business, and the cargo is lost, stolen or damaged. Your company is legally liable, but can you afford to pay out for the loss? Few freight businesses can, which is where freight forwarding liability insurance comes in. As a rule, cargo owners need marine insurance, and carriers and freight forwarders need liability insurance.

  • Damage to cargo
  • Any errors and omissions that you are responsible for

The environment is one of the world's biggest concerns right now, with businesses all over the world making efforts to cut the amount of pollution they create and do everything they can to prevent environmental damage through risks like chemical spills and poor hazardous waste management. At the same time, environmental fines are getting bigger and regulations are becoming stricter. When commercial policies don't cover pollutions risks or don't provide enough protection, WIP fills the gap.

What is the purpose of WIP?
Your current business insurance policies might not cover pollution, may not cover it fully, and can even exclude it altogether. It makes sense to invest in a dedicated Waste Insurance Program designed to protect your financial interests if something goes wrong. This product protects every size of company, large and small, against the financial risks involved in causing pollution, which can cost a fortune to clear up. It's a relatively simple product that we can usually underwrite quickly, often providing the cover you need within 3 days.

Key features
The policy covers the following:

  • 25 ton maximum per lorry at RM 37,500 per truck/lorry 
  • Removal of debris expense: RM 35,000 any one conveyance/trip with RM 150,000 in aggregate (12 months) 
  • Minimal paperwork, simple underwriting, fast cover
  • Door to Door (Factory to Factory)
